Forgetting history: State shouldn't leave social studies behind

Forgetting history: State shouldn't leave social studies behind | Daily Discourses | Scoop.it
Notably absent were history and social studies teachers. This is not unusual, given the traditional place of these disciplines at the bottom rung of the academic priority list. However, anyone who carefully reads the common core standards will realize that the exclusion of these teachers is misguided.

 

History and social studies are indeed an integral component of the common core, which posits an interdisciplinary approach to literacy. The common core standards address the persistent myth that only English teachers are responsible for teaching literacy by stating that "college and career readiness overwhelmingly focuses on complex texts outside of literature," and that "these standards also ensure students are being prepared to read, write, and research across the curriculum, including in history and science." They note further that this is best achieved "by ensuring that teachers in other disciplines are also focusing on reading and writing to build knowledge within their subject areas."

Why is Social Studies Text So Difficult to Read?

Why is Social Studies Text So Difficult to Read? | Daily Discourses | Scoop.it

Social Studies textbooks are usually boring! They are often not a good fit for our learners today. Students feel that the study of old events and dead people have little relevance in their lives. Students find little emotional connections when events, facts, timelines, and dead people are taught. Too often historical topics are taught with little context of how past events and historical figures are related today’s issues.

Moving toward a literacy action model- social studies | Daily Discourses | Scoop.it

In my November 3 post I wrote about the continuous raw data that flows through Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, forums, and other social media tools. When we look at the data, we have to put in place filters to understand the information that is being presented. As we look at the data being presented, we have to think a different way in order to understand the message that is being communicated.
